I would describe this shade as a grey-silver with an icy blue tint to it. I love this color, it looks beautiful and I wear it all of the time. It has become one of my favorites, if not my favorite eye shadow. It's great to wear during the day or on a night out. I like how it makes my blue-grey eyes stand out. People here comment that you can find similar colors from other brands, which is true. However, I love metallic greys like this, so it is worth the price for me (plus Urban Decay is great quality). For anyone that likes a metallic, smoky-eyed look, than this is for you.
Electra gives such a sexy, smoky-eyed look and looks fabulous when paired with black eyeliner. I love the metallic grey-silver color, it makes my grey-blue eyes stand out! I think this is a must-have for people with blue eyes. This is a great shade to wear on an evening out to play-up the eyes, but it's a nice color for daytime too. This is probably my favorite eyeshadow. I just purchased it for the second time around. I've been told this makes my eyes look gorgeous, so it is a must-have for me.
This shade came with a set of lip glasses that I've purchased. I do like it, but I wouldn't have purchased this shade on my own. It looks like a VERY harsh berry color in the bottle, and it does come out a lot softer when applied. It looks decent on me, but there are a lot of shades that work better on me. I'm not afraid to try bold shades, but this didn't work too well with my already-pigmented lips and cool toned coloring. I let my mom use this one now, because it works better with her medium to dark complexion and less pigmented lips. Some people have commented on this shade as being "sexy" but I think there are a lot sexier lip glasses out there for someone with my coloring. For blondes with beige skin and pigmented lips, like me, I'd recommend MAC lip glasses in Lychee Luxe, Nico, and Lust!
This complements my beige skin coloring very well and brings out my full, pigmented lips even more so, since it is shiny. The medium brown-pink shade of the gloss really goes well with my natural lip coloring. It isn't super shimmery: it is a nice, opaque pink-brown, which is a good change for me, since I gravitate for more shimmery pinks usually. Also, it has a great amount of shine to it. I like how this lip glass isn't super sheer, but is still subtle at the same time. Before wearing, apply lip balm, because it is super sticky. Overall, I'd definitely recommend this product. It's great for girls with lips on the pigmented side, like me and it definitely gives a very sexy look.
This is a beautiful bronze, shimmery shade that looks very glamorous and sophisticated. I really think that this shade would go with most skin tones. I usually go for pinkish lipsticks/glosses, but this color works nicely on me. I'm repurchasing for the second time around, so I definitely like it a lot. It's a unique shade worth every cent, in my opinion. Also, it is long lasting on me. Some people might not like the sticky texture, but I happen to like it since I am a big fan of MAC lip glasses. Oh Baby is my favorite brown shade for lips, hands down.
Another great MAC lip glass. This shade is a very pretty pinky-coral that makes my lips stand out nicely. It's a nice opaque shade for a change, rather than a super-sparkly one. This has a great shine to it as well. I think this lip gloss complements my coloring, as I think it would for most people with light to medium complexions. Some people may not like its sticky texture, but it doesn't bother me, since lip balm before use fixes the problem nicely. I rated 4/5 only because there are other MAC lip glasses that I find myself wearing more for everyday, but I will probably eventually find myself missing this shade and will repurchase.
Pear Glace is such a nice, uplifting fragrance. I can definitely understand why this has been around for a while, and I really hope this stays around. This scent is not sweet, nor is it flowery, spicy, or soapy. It is fruity, but so much more than that. This leaves behind a crisp and sparkling-clean feeling. People who love nice, light, fresh fragrances should look here. I would not call this masculine, but it is not exactly girlie either. Lasting power is okay, but I wish it was better. I do get compliments though, especially from my boyfriend, who thinks this is one of the best fragrances in my large collection. He thinks Pear Glace smells very sexy, which suggests that subtlety is often the best thing.
From the first time I tested this fragrance, I knew I had to buy it. The packaging is cute and suggests everything this fragrance is: fun, flirty, and feminine. It is funny that this is called Pink, because it smells more green. It also has a grapefruit smell to it, and I detect soft florals. There is a bit of sweetness, but nothing like those pink-sugar types of fragrances that I dislike. I think it is interesting that many people save this for fall/winter, because I associate it more with summer and spring due to the citrus nature of this scent. It can very easily be worn for any season or occasion, in my opinion though. The fragrances lasts for a good amount of time too, so it is worth the price. I associate this scent with some good memories. I first tried this years ago, and I still wear it now. I get tired of many perfumes, but not this one.

Although this scent is not one of my favorites in my very large collection, I can definitely see why it is so popular. I think it does smell heavenly and elegant. My favorite Dream Angels fragrance is Halo, which is the richest scent of them all, but Heavenly definitely comes second. Heavenly is still on the rich side and has a vanilla base, which is great for me, because I love vanilla. It is a bit sweet, a bit spicy, and completely creamy, making it a great oriental fragrance. The dry down is quite powdery and delicate, making it a "safe" choice for people that find certain oriental fragrances overpowering. I think it starts out slightly masculine, but the dry down is completely feminine. Lasting power is good too. I do not usually wear this on "date night," because I find it to be pretty, but not as sexy as other scents I wear. Plus, my boyfriend does not particularly care for this one. I save wearing Heavenly on days where I have classes though, and it is perfect to wear then.
I LOVE this blush, it's my favorite! I have fair, beige colored skin and this gives my cheeks a healthy, sunkissed glow. I'm definitely going to repurchase when I run out. I also like how it gives just the right amount of color and it is very natural looking, in spite of how shimmery it appears before you apply it.
This is a beautiful, sparkly mauve shade that lasts for quite a long time. This is a sheer mauve color with glitter in it, and while that may sound tacky, it's really a pretty, subtle shade. This definitely wouldn't work for everyone, but this has become a staple of mine. I am cool toned with blonde hair and this seems to work well for me, because my friend complimented me on it. Definitely spend the time testing this color out, because I think it'll be either a hit-or-miss, depending on what your coloring is like and based on how pigmented your lips are. I like the thick texture, because it stays on for a super long time. Love this!
I just purchased this lip gloss for the second time, because it has become my all-time favorite! Nothing is quite like this gloss. The color is one-of-a-kind, a hot purpley-pink that is actually quite sheer after applied. It looks amazing!! I like how it isn't too sticky, so my lips stay moisturized while wearing it. This may not work for everyone, but I think it would look best on blondes who are cool toned. This color wouldn't work for everyone, so make sure to test it before buying it. I like how this gloss is very shiny, but doesn't have any glitter in it, so it has a smooth, glossy texture. Best lip gloss ever!
